Digitalisation: Solving the Productivity Puzzle

Date & Time: Wednesday 10th October 2018 1:30pm – 3:30pm

Location: The Base, Dallam Lane, Warrington WA2 7NG

Cost: Free

Event Overview:

International investors no longer locate their businesses based on labour costs alone. Many locate in the UK because of our strengths in R&D, technology and skills. Some commentators suggest we are on the cusp of a fourth industrial revolution -‘Industry 4.0’ – driven by ‘embedded’ or ‘cyber physical’ systems interacting intelligently. So what does this mean for UK productivity and growth? How will technologies change the way we do business? Are we about to witness a period of advanced re-industrialisation?

Speaker: Alan Norbury, Central Technology Officer, Siemens plc

Organiser: The Base.  Organised in collaboration with the Institution of Engineering and Technology
